Portable oxygen machine aiming to save one million lives

SentOx is an oxygen machine in a briefcase designed to World Health Organization specifications. Developed by Port Melbourne tech company Sentient Oxygen, the low-cost oxygen concentrator is designed for treating COVID-19 patients in less-developed countries, such as Indonesia, India and South Africa.

Partnering with Every Breath Counts Coalition and Oxygen CoLab — global organisations helping low- to middle-income countries access better public health — Sentient Oxygen’s philanthropic project aims to save one million lives by 2022 by distributing over 7000 SentOx units to people in need.

The machines are entirely funded by individual donors and investors, but more help is needed in order to save one million lives. The team is calling for help to scale up, distribute and organise local and in-country support and suppliers.

To make a donation, visit the GoFundMe page or donate directly on the company website: https://www.sentientoxygen.net/.

Sentient Oxygen Pty Ltd is an approved charity with full DGR1 status, meaning donations are tax deductible.
